The Eczema Diet, by Karen Fischer (Exisle Publishing, RRP $35):
Aussie nutritionist and award-winning author Karen Fischer has drawn on her experience of being the mum of a child with eczema to produce a book that promises to change the life of anyone who suffers from eczema.
Between 10 and 25 per cent of us have eczema and for the first time, the findings of hundreds of international researchers and skin specialists have been pulled together to solve the eczema puzzle.
Whether you have mild eczema or something more full-on, The Eczema Diet shows how to get your skin back to its best.
Special chapters also cover a fast-track detox for adults, skin care and non-diet information, dandruff and cradle cap remedies, emergency itch busters and much more.
There are menus for the entire family and, best of all, once the eczema is under control, the “patient” can return to a normal diet and stay eczema-free.
The author’s The Health Skin Diet received rave reviews so there’s no reason to believe the diet in this book will be any less effective.
